l'm Dani and I'm looking for some buddies to share my journey with
I just need someone to help keep me motivated, share their tips/tricks and pick me up on those days when things go bad and of course I promise to be a great buddy in return!
I'm currently 5'3" and 120lbs and have found on other forums that people weren't very supportive as they thought that I did not need to lose any weight because I'm already a healthy weight for my height. I know that I don't need to lose 'weight', and I don't actually want to, I would just like to lose the stubborn 2-3 inches sitting around my stomach, arms and thighs so I can fit comfortably back into a size 8 ready for my 21st birthday in December
Being 5'3" I just feel that the extra pounds make me look chubby - something which I was told repeatedly while on holidays this year - and so this time I'm determined that they have to go.
For the past two weeks I've been doing a Zumba routine 5-6 times a week which I'm really enjoying and although I've been eating relatively healthily I've had more than a few cheat meals recently so I've decided to start officially on Monday when I am back in university and can shop for myself.
I'm just going to continue with the Zumba and add in some arm/ab toning sessions 3 times a week with the aim of building lean muscle to speed up my metabolism naturally. I'm also going to cut down on carbs, mainly by swapping cereal, pasta, rice and bread with fruit and veg. I think I'll have to allow myself one day a week for carbs though as I'm pretty much an addict! lol aiming for 1100kcal allowance a day which along with my zumba should get me around 1.5lbs fat loss a week
(hoping to lose around 10 by the 1st of December)
If anyone would like to be my buddy or just has any advice/suggestions for me please let me know!
Best wishes to you all!
